With no one in second who's first?

People who have college degrees earn more over a lifetime than those who don’t (over $1 million more). The article says the researchers would like to use this tidbit to get more students to go to college. My question is this: if everyone went to college who would be left over to do menial labor? In recent years we’ve seen a surge in college enrollement, while the job market has declined. Who’s the first to be laid off? High paid consultants usually. This reminds me of one of my sayings “If there weren’t losers we wouldn’t be winners.” Think about it – who’d clean up the bathrooms? I sure as hell wouldn’t if I was sitting on a degree. Does this mean colleges will offer “Janitors 101”? It’s really dumb. Some people aren’t meant for college – everyone should just let them be.
